The Nimbus Jacket is a quick drying insulated jacket with a lightweight Pertex Quantum shell. Rab's Cirrus insulation offers down style lofting with the wet weather insulating performance of a synthetic, making it perfect for cold and damp environments. In terms of warmth in the Cirrus range, the Nimbus is the next step down from the Nebula Pro but a step up from the Altus.
A technical all-rounder ideal for cold days at the crag and winter walking, the Nimbus is a quick-drying insulated jacket designed to handle cold and damp environments.
With a lightweight and windproof Pertex® Quantum fabric, the Nimbus Jacket can be worn as an outer or mid layer. Our Cirrus™ insulation lofts like down, with the wet weather insulating performance of a synthetic. Technical features include an over or under helmet hood with stretch binding and peak, front zip with insulated baffle, and elasticated cuffs to maximise warmth. With one zipped internal security pocket, and two zipped handwarmer pockets, the left side doubles as an integrated stuff sack which can be clipped to a harness or backpack.
Lightweight and packable, the Nimbus Jacket is easy to care for and well suited to the damp, cold and changeable conditions experienced in the UK hills.

The Rab Nimbus Jacket is perfect as a winter climbing and belay jacket as it's insulated with Cirrus powered by 3M featherless insulation which closely mimics the look and performance of down while maintaining its warmth, even when wet. The stitch-through baffle construction ensures that the moisture-repelling insulation doesn't spread or bunch, preventing cold spots from forming.
The Nimbus Jacket has great technical features such as elasticated lycra cuffs, an adjustable hem cord and a helmet compatible hood which can be worn under or over a helmet with a lycra binding. The jacket also has plenty of storage pockets with 1 zipped internal security pocket for handy essentials and 2 large zipped hand warmer pockets. The left side pocket also doubles as an integrated stuff sack for increased packability.
The latest incarnation of the Rab Nimbus Jacket has had some slight tweaks. It's now warmer than before thanks to the extra 30g of insulation and has been re-cut and re-styled for an improved fit. In terms of warmth in the Cirrus range, the Nimbus is the next step down from the Nebula Pro but a step up from the Altus.
